The map is simple and fun. players get alot of control compared to other races due to the random happenings. also is very funny in places.
all players are equal so their are no balance issues. the winner is mearlly decided by skill alone.
you get a four as their are many other races but you have deffinetly added somthing to the gene with the fact the game is randomly different every time.

everything from the shifting sands in the desert to the final treck are perfect however i cant give you a 5 or a 4 due to the intital large amounts of the evil Grass Type A (lol just noticed GTA) and the fact their is little terain mixing these really would have inproved the map if gone/done.
Not much story behind why the donkeys are racing... but apart from that instructions and messages kept players well upto date.
great map but still has some basic short commings in the map dessign front.

I played this map many times and i never felt bored. It keeps entertaining no matter what circumstances. It's nice to know it's fair even for the host who probably knows the map very well when's hosting it. But on this map the host doesn't always win. That's good. Good work!
One thing why i like this map is because it's fair, like i mentioned above. When I'm racing i always thing: Oh shit, another mother nature unit! But when i look at it when not playing i see there aren't really a lot nature units. I see as well that you're scenario is good balanced ;)
I think you've been very creative because i like to see the dokeys racing. It's very amusing. I like the walls built in a circle as well, it keeps the game exciting.Why only a 4? Because it isn't really a new idea. I played horse races before. Though this scenario is even better than those horse races.

I like your map, as i already mentioned a lot. But one minor thing are the blank places between the pieces of the race track. Maybe you should ad some more eyecandy there?
Some people i played with didn't really know what they had to do. Even though, to my opinion, the word 'race' says it all. But maybe you should a short cinematic to it for the players who aren't that smart? ;)
Additional Comments: Wonderful scenario map! Good for a lot of hours entertainment!
